Emmerdale's Lisa and Belle Dingle struggle with murder
'Emmerdale's' Lisa and Belle Dingle will be torn in two after Belle confesses she is responsible for her pal Gemma Andrews' murder
'Emmerdale's' Lisa Dingle will struggle with her daughter Belle's shocking murder confession next week.
The soap favourite, played by Jane Cox, will convince the schoolgirl to keep quiet about her involvement in Gemma Andrews' death after Belle (Eden Taylor-Draper) confesses all to her mother.
Gemma (Tendai Rinomhota) hit her head on a rock after being shoved by her best friend in a heated row recently, and Belle is overcome with guilt as she realises she's responsible for her pal's death.
Eden told Inside Soap magazine: "The guilt is eating away at Belle and she wants to own up to what she's done.
"When Lisa confronts Belle she starts sobbing and ends up blurting out that she killed Gemma. It's horrific.
"Belle has killed her best friend and feels that she deserves to be punished. She wants to go to the police and say, 'Look, I've done it - lock me up', but Lisa has to protect her family and she certainly doesn't want Belle to go to prison."
However, Belle will continue to be consumed by guilt as Gemma dies in hospital after succumbing to her head injuries.
Eden said: "Belle didn't intentionally mean to hurt Gemma. Gemma got straight back up when Belle pushed her and even told her to get out of her life. It only hits home to Belle that she's at fault when Gemma is eventually found."
